IB Global Politics

The global politics course explores fundamental political concepts such as power, equality, sustainability, and peace in a range of contexts and at a variety of levels. All standard level and higher-level students complete a common core under the central unifying theme of “people, power and politics“.

In both Year 12 and 13, students will deepen their understanding of:

  • Power
  • Human Rights
  • Development 
  • Peace and Conflict
  • Internal Assessment:
  • Engagement activity: an engagement on a political issue of personal
  • interest, complemented with research
  • Higher Level Extension: research and an oral presentation on political issues in two case studies, falling under global political challenges, (environment; poverty; health; identity; borders; security)
